Happy New Year
 I was  wondering this year why we say Happy New Year.  Is it because we are happy from all the festivities of Christmas and new years or do we want this year to be better than last? We do make resolutions hoping to improve on our past.

I know for me I just want to get back to healthy eating and a routine from Christmas celebrations, but not as a new years resolution.

I’ve learned over the years not to make new years resolutions as they don’t last.  We are two weeks into the new year, have you kept your resolution? If you haven't don't loose heart. On the news they said this is the worst time to make a resolution. 

As I pondered my lack of making a New Years resolution, I realized as a Christian every day should be a new year’s resolution.
In 2 Corinthians 3:18 Paul  tells us that “We all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.
We don't do the transforming. That is God's job. Our only responsibility is to ask God to change us; as David did after he sinned with Bathsheba.  Create in me a clean heart O God and renew a steadfast spirit within me.  Psalm 51:10.

Let this be our prayer for this year and always.

Thanks so much, Joyce. I had to get my Bible out and underline that verse.
